Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling

Do you and your partner struggle with the same argument with little understanding from the other? Do you struggle in communicating your feelings or that your partner is not a good listener? Do you feel like your relationship is stagnant or at a standstill? Do you feel like you and your partner are disconnected and drifting away from one another? Do you desire more emotional and physical intimacy and connectedness between you and your partner?

Couples can learn skills to improve their relationship and to help make their relationship more connected, supportive, and resilient with just a little support, no matter how big or small the problem is. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs and work together to get more of what you both want out of your relationship.

“To achieve a lasting loving bond, we have to be able to tune in to our deepest needs and longings and translate them into clear signals that help our lovers respond to us. We have to be able to accept love and to reciprocate.” ~ Dr. Sue Johnson from Hold Me Tight

Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:

  • Addiction / partner addiction support
  • Work, life, and family out of balance
  • Blended families
  • Chronic pain and illness
  • Separation and divorce
  • Conflict or disagreement with in-laws or extended family
  • Disagreements about parenting, finances, etc.
  • Infidelity / cheating
  • Emotional intimacy
  • Issues with insecurity, commitment, or emotional vulnerability
  • Mental illness
  • Deciding whether or not to live together or get married
  • Pornography
  • Sex and physical intimacy

In my couple’s therapy sessions, using a combination of the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) approaches, I help people develop the necessary skills needed to maintain sustaining love.

If any of the above relate to you and your partner, contact me today for a free consultation so that I can speak with you about how I may be able to help you heal your relationship and reconnect and rekindle your fondness and love for one another.
